3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Hamnmästaren, Malmö
The bottle is a slow infinite gusher; it pours a hazy amber color with large head. The aroma is nice: wood, wine, some vanilla; pungent, with some acidity and strong fruits (grapes), funky. The mouthfeel is still too much carbonated, and very dry; it has a funky flavor with nice vinous character, but also a bit too much astringency; moderate acidity.
Good but not elegant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Counter pressured growler via Hopscotch at the JPBP Gathering 2013: Deep golden near amber hue with a frothy head. The aroma has notes of light barnyard brettanomyces, sour apple, bready and toasty malts along with some floral esters. The taste is a nice soft dankness and funk with a flowery and biscuity malt notes. The sourness is surprisingly mild and adds to the overall experience. The mouth feel is lively and very refreshing, a tad chalky. I like this but did hope that the brett would have taken hold more. Comes off more akin to a Berliner Weiss than a full blown wild ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, orangey off-white head. Bretty aroma, barnyard funk, lots of fruit, orange, mango, peach. Taste is bretty, fruity, grapes, kumquat, pear, dry hints of fruit parings, moderately tart touch, continous vestiges of a long drop in the background.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeast and slight funk aroma. Light body with a lively mouthfeel. Essence of fruit, and funk with minimal aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at CBX, Charleston. Deep orange/amber pour, fairly murky but still with decent carbonation to it. Dark berry and brett in the nose, almost like a cross between an oud bruin and an Orval clone or something. Full mouthfeel, moderately acetic. Tons of oak and a good deal of citrus comes through in the taste. Interesting combination of flavors, and mostly successful.

Pleasant brett beer, pretty much in the orval tradition. Light funk, pleasant hops and malt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Amber with small head. Huge Brett nose, but less so in the flavor. It seems to add more fruitiness than sour flavor in this case. Really nice.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
I gave this one a good effort, but couldn’t actually bring myself to have more than a few sips. Utterly unappealing with an intense and overwhelming presence of brett.
